The subdivision, to be known as Hudson Park, will be at the northern entrance to the downtown area, which is “the last remaining development site in the Canton Street corridor,” the Atlanta-area homebuilder said in a planning application with the city of Alpharetta.
The subdivision will be in the southeast quadrant of the intersection of Canton Street and Mayfield Road. It will include walking trails, a pedestrian bridge and the improvement of a city-owned parcel on Canton Street.
Harrison Homes will rehabilitate the historic Weatherford House, which has sat “vacant and deteriorating” on the property for many years, as part of the development.
The application says the developer will take into account a roundabout the city is planning as a replacement for the existing signalized intersection.
The parcel was in 2014 approved for a 20-lot subdivision of townhouses and single-family residences called Mayfield Corners, which Harrison Homes deemed “out of date” and “not marketable.”
“This is likely the last opportunity to add a different housing type to the corridor before it reaches buildout conditions,” Harrison Homes said.
